School (Home-Away)

Air Force (5-6) [already scheduled Army and Navy; no FCS scheduled]
Old Dominion (6-5) [no FCS scheduled]
SMU (5-6) [scheduled FCS SFA; haven't yet scheduled TCU (would be at SMU)]
Southern Miss (5-6) [no FCS scheduled]
TCU (5-5) [haven't yet scheduled SMU (would be at SMU), but would still be short an OOC game; no FCS scheduled]
Texas Tech (6-5) [no FCS scheduled]
UAB (5-6) [no FCS scheduled]
Virginia Tech (6-5) [no FCS scheduled]

And the following schools still have a 13th game they could schedule, since they're playing at Hawaii in 2020.

Boise State (7-5) [no FCS scheduled]
Nevada (6-6) [scheduled FCS UC Davis]
New Mexico State (5-7) [already scheduled UNM, UTEP, and FCS Texas Southern]
UCLA (6-6) [no FCS scheduled, as they've never played FCS, but since USC will be...]
UNLV (7-5) [no FCS scheduled]

So here's the latest version of my best-case scenario for UConn's 2020 schedule:

(01) Thu, 09/03: Massachusetts
(02) Sat, 09/12: @ Illinois
(03) Sat, 09/19: Maine (FCS)
(04) Sat, 09/26: Indiana
(05) Sat, 10/03: @ Bowling Green [replaces Liberty @ Bowling Green]
(06) Sat, 10/10: Liberty [ULM @ Liberty moves from 10/10 to 10/03]
(07) Sat, 10/17: @ Southern Miss
(08) Sat, 10/24: @ UAB
(09) Sat, 10/31: New Mexico State [NMSU has a bye this week]
(10) Sat, 11/07: @ Massachusetts [replaces NMSU @ UMass; NMSU gets a bye instead]
(11) Sat, 11/14: @ Liberty [replaces FCS Western Carolina @ Liberty]
(12) Sat, 11/21: BYE
(13) Sat, 11/28: @ New Mexico State [NMSU has a bye this week]

Well, to be fair, UConn didn't have much chance of landing TCU to begin with. I like that they listed the Big 12 CCG in their schedule. Such confidence.

Updated my list. Down to just 6 schools now without 12 games.

NMSU already has 12 games. They can't go to 14.

RE: UConn future scheduling, or lack thereof.
I think what he’s trying to do is add a 13th Hawaii exemption game for NMSU and then breaking up the NMSU vs UMass game that’s already scheduled and having UConn serve as a replacement opponent for both teams.

By doing so UConn would play UMass and NMSU twice each and NMSU would only have a total of 13 games scheduled

Unofficial for now, but it looks like UConn got San Jose State and Army to get on their schedule for 2020. It appears that Army and UConn will have a long-term scheduling agreement.

Certainly makes sense for UConn-Army to be an annual game.

I always knew that the next couple of years of scheduling would result in a lot of scrambling, but I've said before that I'm relatively optimistic on UConn's ability to schedule games long-term. Low-to-mid-tier P5 schools (like Indiana and my alma mater of Illinois) have no issue with signing home-and-home series with a school like UConn and the Huskies will be able to sell flexibility in dates. (Note that all of the P5 conferences, even the traditional Big Ten, have been scheduling more conference games during the first couple of weeks of the season, which opens up more non-conference dates later on in the season than what we've seen in the past.)

As long as UConn can play 2 or 3 more P5 opponents per year compared to now, that will be considered to be an overall success. The *depth* of the schedule for UConn is irrelevant because they legitimately didn't see AAC opponents (outside of maybe Cincinnati) as more attractive for the fan base as MAC or Sun Belt schools - they were all just a big mass of "G5 schools" to them. (Whether UConn has the right to have that viewpoint considering their own performance on the field is an entirely different matter.) A few more attractive P5 games at the top truly matters more to UConn and that's how they'll measure scheduling success as an independent.

If this is the case, it would seem they bought out the Army at SJSU game scheduled for 11/14/20. That would mean adding

@SJSU
vs Army

to the schedule. Army makes out because they can take a bus from West Point to Hartford instead of chartering a flight to San Jose.
